Space.com has an article that says that the Spirit rover is sending pictures again. Apparently, Spirit had a software glitch where it had too many files open and was causing a reboot. Nasa believes they have reproduced the problem and know how to fix it. The opportunity rover has the same problem and they are aware of it and are trying to fix the problem before it becomes an issue with the Opportunity rover as well. As NateW reported in a previous article, Spirit is recovering bit by bit. Nasa is hoping Spirit will be fully recovered in a few weeks.
